At 7pm instead of the usual time

The Ancient Human Occupation of Britain (AHOB) projects have been investigating major questions about the human colonisations of Britain and Europe, since 2001. Questions addressed include the earliest evidence for human arrival, and the overall pattern of occupation during the Palaeolithic, and what was controlling this. In this talk I will provide an update on the progress of the project, including the latest data from East Anglia about the earliest known human presence in Britain, and how this relates to evidence from continental Europe. At the other end of the Palaeolithic record, I will discuss current views on Neanderthals and early modern humans, together with the latest results of DNA studies about their relationship.
